MTA Seniors Noam Ben Simon, Raphi Spoerri, Tani Glaser, and Eitan Brown, and Sophomore Pinchas Rosenfeld, won first place at the Yeshiva University Hack-A-Thon! The event began on Sunday, April 10, and lasted through the night, with project presentations taking place on Monday morning, April 11.
The theme of the event was healthcare. The MTA team created an innovative machine that uses a camera to detect where a patient’s thickest vein is located and then inserts an IV in that vein. MTA is proud of its team, which was the only high school team at the event and competed against college students. The team is grateful to faculty advisor and MTA alumnus Benjamin Jacob for his guidance and support.
